Mychal Kendricks was released by the Browns after being charged with insider trading

"Seattle not likely to waste any time: Kendricks expected to play Monday night vs. Bears", Schefter tweeted Thursday evening.

While Mychal Kendricks awaits sentencing in December, the linebacker isn't ousted from the National Football League just yet.

ESPN first reported Kendricks' deal with the Seahawks.

It's no secret that free agent linebacker Mychael Kendricks is a quality talent on the field, but he's had trouble finding a job after pleading guilty to insider trading on September 6.

The Seahawks announced Friday they have signed the former Eagles and Browns linebacker.

The Kendricks signing is not without some concern, as just last week the linebacker pleaded guilty to charges of insider trading. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges. Considering Kendricks is set to be sentenced sometime in December, maybe they're content to see what they can get out of him until then and forget about the optics.

The Browns released him August 29, after the charges were filed.

We'll see as this all unfolds what type of punishment Kendricks will face for his actions.

Kendircks used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals, federal prosecutors said.

A second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012, Kendricks started 74 games in six seasons with the team.

On Aug. 29, both men were indicted on one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
